Soufra, a full-length documentary produced by Rebelhouse Studios, follows the journey of the world's most unlikely social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar, as she strives to grow a catering business within a Beirut refugee camp.
Mariam, like many refugees featured in Soufra, has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp just south of Beirut, Lebanon. And like many refugees, Mariam has dreams of a better life, for both herself and the community. That's why Mariam and a group of fellow refugees set out to launch the catering company, Soufra, against all odds. Now, with the help of her catering team, Mariam continues to tackle challenges to further expand Soufra into a food truck business. In the process, Mariam goes where she's never gone before , pulling together Syrian, Iraqi, Palestinian and Lebanese women to work side by side and form beautiful friendships while running this thriving company.
Hydro Studios and Rebelhouse Studios are teaming up to bring Soufra to several cities on our Global Tour, kicking off October 11th, the International Day of the Girl, to uplift and inspire young women and children all over the globe. Join us for an international experience to empower female entrepreneurs, raise awareness of the challenges refugees face, and of course, celebrate delicious food.
